Ornamental iron work is a type of metalwork that is used for decoration or functional purposes. It can include elements such as gates, fences, railing, and decorative grilles as well as more functional items such as door hardware and structural support elements. Ornamental ironwork is often made from iron and steel, but it can also be made from other metals such as aluminum or brass. The design and fabrication of ornamental ironwork requires a high level of skill and craftsmanship, and it is often used to add beauty and value to buildings and other structures.
